The City of Birmingham has tracking and tracing methods in place for COVID-19. As previously reported, 10 percent of Department of Public Works employees have been affected by COVID-19. Over the last few weeks, the absences of DPW workers have affected the city’s ability to collect household trash in a timely fashion in some parts of the city. As a city, we are sorry to see this virus affect our employees and their families, and we are hoping for a full recovery for them.

We have pulled in crews throughout the city to cover areas when routes have been affected due to COVID. This week, we are in the process of hiring temporary workers to assist with trash collection, and we have promoted several laborers to refuse collector positions. Starting Saturday, Aug. 14, we will increase the starting salary for refuse collectors from $12.97 to $15.02. Employees are eligible for paid vacation, paid holidays and health insurance.

On Friday, Aug. 20 and Saturday, Aug. 21, the city will host agility skills tests for those who’ve applied to be refuse collectors. The physical tests will take place at the Birmingham Crossplex. To apply and to learn more information about the job, people may visit www.birminghamal.gov/workforbham.

The City’s hardworking employees remain committed in delivering quality service to residents, and the city asks the public to remain patient as team members continue to serve in the midst of this pandemic.

If your household trash was recently missed, the Birmingham Public Works apologize for the inconvenience. City crews are working very hard to get caught up after facing challenges concerning COVID-19 and heat and rain issues from last week.

Please be patient with us as crews work to address missed areas today, Aug. 4. If you experienced a missed pick-up, please call 311 and provide your phone number, address and the missed pick-up date.

Also, crews will still work to pick up recycling today, Aug. 4, which is the city’s regular recycling day.

You know the summer is hot here in Alabama. 🔥

That's why Woodlawn Street Market has shifted the August event to a night market!

So remember to join vendors, artisans, makers, and creators on August 14 for a night you won't forget!

Hey friends - it's Pastor Emily from Woodlawn Methodist. In case you are looking for reading material/some Jesus inspiration in these days of staying at home, I've put some devotional books out on our porch. There are a few Lenten books that members of our church wrote, and several others. You are free to take what looks good to you. Also, don't forget about our Little Free Pantry in the parking lot by the alley - if you have extra to share, put some in; if you are in need, take some out. 139 54th Street North

Sad to report there was a grey pitbull that had been hit and killed by a car on 1st Avenue North just before 68th Street right before Woodlawn High School and the interstate. The dog was wearing a blue leash. Not sure if it broke off it's chain or broke away from it's owner. She called Streets and Sanitation to pick it up but not sure they have yet. The Humane Society doesn't pick up deceased animals. So sorry for the owners. Beautiful dog.
Neighbors: The photo below is of a dog who was riding in the cab of an 18 wheeler on I-20 West where I-20 joins 59 on the ramp of what is called, dead man's curve in front of Forest Hill Cemetery, when the truck was involved in a serious accident. The dog's name is Bailey and the owners have been in the hospital since the accident. The owners are from Arizona so, completely unfamiliar with this area. After the accident, the dog was seen going into the woods close to where the accident happened and in front of Forest Hill Cemetery. This dog has been out on it's own for a week. Most likely hiding in one of the abandoned houses and scrounging for food, most likely at night. We don't know if the poor dog was injured or just frightened. We believe because the dog spent so much time with it's owners, that it most likely has not moved far from the area, as dogs stay close to the last place they saw their people when something happens and the dog most likely visits the area of the accident at least once a day waiting for his/her people. PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THIS DOG AND IF YOU SEE THE DOG, CALL OR TEXT THEIR NIECE, KATIE POWELL AT: 205-356-4349. I am also sharing the LOST poster as well as a story that was done about the dog by a local TV station in comments section below. PLEASE HELP THIS COUPLE FIND THEIR BELOVED DOG. I am also going to share this on the Woodlawn Community pages. Thank you in advance for helping this couple find their dog.
Woodlawn United Methodist Church as a new Little Free Pantry in our parking lot closest to the alley. It's a gray shed under the big tree. It's a sharing pantry. If you have non-perishable food (produce, dairy, meats) to give, then place them in the pantry. If you need some food, then check the pantry for items. You don't have to come to the church door to ask - just give and take.
Congrats Club Duq Johnston. We are happy to have you in Woodlawn.
The YWCA Woodlawn Family Resource Center is having a family cooking class tonight if anyone is interested. It is free and focused on healthy living. Let me know if you would like to be added to the list!
Here is our Board Member speaking on the First Day of School.
